Rosa mosqueta, wild rose or dog rose hips is one of the most known ornamental plants in the world. The rose bush appeared somewhere in the East, probably in China or Persia and was introduced to Western countries by Greece. It was taken to Chile by Spanish colonizers where it grows spontaneously in the Andean hillsides. In the antiquity, wild rose roots were used to dissolve kidney stones. The Romans used the flower against drunkenness and to prepare perfumes. The dry fruit has been used in the preparation of jelly, wine and in the decoration of cakes.1 The dry fruit has been as a source of vitamin for a long time. During World War II studies prove that Rosa mosqueta is a source of vitamin C. Oil is extracted from its seeds and used extensively in cosmetology.1
